Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog! If you came via the Mini Catalogue Blog Hop, you'll have come from Sharon's 'My Ink Pad'..

I've been crazy busy these last couple of weeks preparing for my Tea, Cake & Craft Party which should be happening right about now! So I thought I'd show you a couple of projects we'll be making today using products from the wonderful Mini Catalogue.

First, here's a scrapbook page I made using the beautiful Springtime Vintage DSP:

Want a closer look?
Love that Seam Binding ribbon! I've also used the new Four Frames stamps plus the matching Decorative Label punch; Strength & Hope butterfly on the background; and Beautiful Wings Embosslits for the tiny butterflies.

I do love that Springtime Vintage DSP - as soon as I saw it I had the notion of making some bunting with it. Here it is in progress..

Note the Seam Binding again.. this one is Rose Red. And here's the finished article hanging proudly on the mantelpiece!



Next is a card I made using the lovely Sweet Stitches DSP along with those Beautiful Wings Embosslits again.. well they are cute, aren't they!


Also using the Sweet Stitches DSP.. a little box for pins. :o) It's actually a little box I bought from Ikea ages ago with the idea of altering in some way.. and at last I've had a go! The button is one of the Big Designer Buttons in the Sweet Stitches range.


OK, that's it from me! Your next stop on the Blog Hop is Jayne at Mad About Stamps... have fun, and thanks for visiting!
